The City of Coppell Arts Council (CAC) is proud to announce a call for entries for Andy Brown Art Stroll, a biennial outdoor public art exhibit. This exihibit is an extension of Phase I which was implemented in Old Town Coppell.   CAC will select up to ten sculptures to be exhibited for a 2-year period.  Coppell is a family friendly, community centric town. Andy Brown has recently been renovated and the city is utilizing this new area for community wide events and festivals.  The location promises great exposure for the artist.  In addition to this the Coppell Arts Council will host a Meet the Artist event and promote the exhibit throughout the DFW region.   Citizen’s will vote for their favorite sculpture and CAC will consider purchasing a sculpture from the Old Town and Andy Brown exhibits.  Selected artists will be provided a stipend of $1800 for the exhibit and winner of the People’s Choice will receive an additional $500.

CAC will award a stipend to up to 10 professional sculptures that are appropriate for public viewing and supports the family / community oriented values of Coppell.  Sculptures are owned by the artist and are loaned to the exhibit for a two year period.  CAC does conduct fundraising to purchase a sculpture and gift to the town.  All sculptures musts be safe for a public setting and made of materials that can withstand the harsh Texas weather and not require any maintenance.  The honorarium is $1,800 dollars with an additional $500 awarded to the People’s Choice.  Due to the scale and openness of the park large, monumental sculptures are encouraged.
